uploading a header picture larger than 900x116 (fresh and clean)

  1. ive had a logo for my website while using forever theme and it worked well, i like the fresh and clean layout better but the only difficulty im having is that the image looks horrible so small and crunched

    how do i change the coding to allow a larger header image for the home page???? please help!

    The blog I need help with is wordonthe-street.com.

  2. I checked http://wordonthe-street.com/ and I see you've added some custom CSS to replace the header image:

    #branding {
    	background: url('http://wordonthestreetdotcom.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/cropped-cropped-wordonthestreesceene2-01.jpg') 0 0 no-repeat;
    	min-height:380px;
    }

    The space for a header is 920px while the image you've references is 885px:

    http://wordonthestreetdotcom.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/cropped-cropped-wordonthestreesceene2-01.jpg

    So there's some extra white space to the right of the header. To get rid of that, you can create a new header image that is 920 pixels wide, upload it to your media library, copy the image URL, and use that in the url() field in your custom CSS.

    You can also make the min-height value match the height of the new image you upload to prevent extra white space between the header and the main menu.
